EastEnders Spoilers: Final Scenes For Jasmine
Armfield started her role as Bex, the daughter of Martin and Sonia Fowler on EastEnders, in 2014. She has been a part of many important story lines along the way, while having a rough time in Walford. Bex had been bullied by teenagers Madison and Alexandra, which came out during a talent show at her school. Another gruelling part of her story line saw her boyfriend Shakil being stabbed in a brutal gang attack. In recent episodes Bex has been battling with her mental health, which led to her attempting to take her life.
Spoilers say fans will be able to watch her final scenes during the EastEnders 35th Anniversary specials airing in February. Spoilers for the anniversary specials point to an important character dying on the celebratory boat party thrown by the Carters to celebrate their win as Pub of the Year. It is currently unknown who that could be but it does coincide with Jasmine’s exit from the soap. All of this comes shortly after Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper), Bex’s best friend has left the show along with Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).
